The Bradley Barton whole school rolling programme ensures that in every age phase a wide range of History topics are covered throughout the year. Each topic is designed to promote cross curricular learning so that the children are accessing varied, fun and engaging history lessons.
Each topic lasts for half a term allowing for many different subjects to be covered. We feel it is important not to force history into a topic if there aren’t any clear links and will ensure this taught at another time.
History is led by Taran Smith
The National Curriculum 2014 states:
History " should inspire pupils' curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of peoples lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, aswell as their own identity and challenges of their time."
